Summer is coming in at full swing which means frozen desserts are essential. While I do love to enjoy some delicious store bought vegan ice cream, they can be overpriced and quite processed. By making my own frozen treats, I know exactly whats in them and they don't flatten my wallet ๐Ÿ˜‚

So have you tried frozen bananas before? For a long time, I thought it was so odd despite my obsession with banana ice cream... until I finally gave it a try. They are a TOTALLY different texture than raw bananas and become this creamy dreamy melt in your mouth bomb of deliciousness. And then with the other flavours of melty chocolate, sweet butterscotch caramel and the texture of the crunchy almonds.... yes. 

What I also love about frozen banana pops is that the topping and flavour combination are endless and I can have something new everyday! However, my favourite has to be the combination of chocolate, peanut butter and some kind of caramel sauce (in this case, butterscotch). I think chocolate is an essential to frozen banana pops, but of course you can use some vegan yogurt to drizzle as well. What are your favourite flavour combinations with frozen bananas?
